ER Open 24 hours, 7 days a week

December 23, 2012

Our first priority is the health and well-being of our patients. It is also our priority that the most critically ill are seen in a timely manner at our two hospital sites in Newbury and Strathroy.

If you have a medical emergency phone 911 or go to your nearest Emergency Department. For non-life threatening emergencies we ask you to consider the following options:

• Contact your family doctor or a walk-in clinic for flu or flu-like symptoms;
• For health advice and general information 24 hours a day, seven days a week contact Telehealth Ontario 1-866-797-0000; and,
• If you must come into the Emergency Department for treatment, please bring only one additional individual with you if necessary.

What should you expect when you visit an ED (MOHLTC)?
